Arsenal in pole position for stunning Reus transfer? 0

Posted on September 25, 2014 by admin

It could be more important than ever for Arsenal to secure a place in the Champions League for next season, especially if the Premier League table at the end of this season has the Gunners sitting above Liverpool and Man United.

That is because it could be the final factor that sees Arsenal beat off the competition from these two BPL rivals for the signature of the talented Germany international forward Marco Reus. According to a Daily Star report, the 25-year old has moved a step closer to an exit from his current club, Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

Which of these two DMs will Arsenal sign in January? 1

Posted on September 25, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger has suggested that the way for Abou Diaby to resurrect his Arsenal career is to alter his approach to the game slightly, become more disciplined and help the Gunners to fill that difficult defensive midfield gap. But unless the French midfielder has a serious change of luck and his body suddenly becomes able to take regular games, it is not going to be enough for Arsenal.

So when the January transfer window opens, unless Diaby has shown he is able to play week in week out and do the DM job well, Wenger could finally turn to the transfer market to solve the problem and there seem to be two main candidates.

The 5 BIG positives from Arsenal v Southampton 0

Posted on September 24, 2014 by admin

Arsenal went out of the Capital One Cup at the first possible stage last night and, although some sections of the Arsenal fans have taken this as another sign that we are going to struggle this season, I am not too concerned and would rather focus on five big positives the Gunners can take from the game against Southampton.

1. Alexis Sanchez had another game full of energy, determination and no little talent. His free kick, which was a pinpoint beauty that gave the Saints keeper no chance, meant that the Chile international has now scored in all three competitions that Arsenal have entered since the start of the season. He really is looking like a fantastic signing by Wenger.

Arsenal League Cup starting XI with Diaby and Ospina 0

Posted on September 23, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger always rotates his Arsenal team for the Capital One Cup, as the League Cup is known in it’s current form. But the fact that it is a Premier League club that is coming to the Emirates this evening means that the boss has still got to select a fairly strong side to give the Gunners a good chance of going through to the next round.

Arsenal starting XI for Aston Villa with Bellerin and Flamini 0

Posted on September 20, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger must have been caught in at least two minds as he prepared his Arsenal team to face Aston Villa in a crucial Premier League today.

On the one hand, Wenger will have wanted to make the most of the abundance of attacking talent available to him, knowing that an away win and all three points would restore self belief to the players and go a long way to pacifying the growing anger and frustration among the Arsenal fans.

Arsenal sweat on scan that could see Debuchy out till January!! 0

Posted on September 19, 2014 by admin

If Arsenal get the bad news that they and Mathieu Debuchy are fearing tonight, after the France international has an exploratory examination on his ankle, then it looks like the Gunners will be without our new right back for the rest of this calendar year.

That would be terrible news and rotten luck for the club and the player. I am sure that one of the reasons for him wanting to move from Newcastle United to Arsenal was to be at a bigger club and to experience more of those Champions League nights that he enjoyed while playing for Lille. And if he needs an operation, he will miss every single one of the group stage matches, after being sent off in the play-offs. Great.

Arsenal to sign Real Madrid star as part of DOUBLE free transfer 0

Posted on September 18, 2014 by admin

Whether Arsene Wenger has been forced to make use of the free transfer system because of the mounting Arsenal injury list, or whether the Frenchman had this idea in mind all the time, I neither know nor care. I just hope that the reports are true.

According to various Arsenal transfer rumours, including the Metro, the defensive crisis at the club has persuaded Wenger that he needs another central defender and there are a few available for free because they are currently without a club.

Bellerin to bounce back at Aston Villa after tough Arsenal debut 1

Posted on September 17, 2014 by admin

We already know that Arsenal are going to be without the France international full back Mathieu Debuchy for a while, hopefully not as long as the three months that have been mentioned by some sources. And one of the reasons for Arsene Wenger handing the 19-year old Hector Bellerin his full Arsenal debut was the lack of options to cover the Frenchman.

Apparently our new defender from Southampton Calum Chambers was ill with Tonsilitis although he did make the bench in Dortmund. Then you have the options of Mathieu Flamini or Francis Coquelin but I think that Wenger will stick with Bellerin for the away game with Aston Villa on Saturday.

Ramsey and Arteta admit Arsenal were awful in Dortmund 0

Posted on September 17, 2014 by admin

Mikel Arteta is the new Arsenal captain and Aaron Ramsey is arguably our best player whose great performances last season earned him the fans vote for Player of the season. They are also the heart of the Arsenal midfield which might as well not have been on the pitch as we were ripped to shreds by Borussia Dortmund last night.

So it is only right that these two senior players shouldered a lot of the blame for our Champions League capitulation, with the Spaniard facing Sky Sports after the match and admitting that Arsenal were well below the performance level needed and just failed to cope with the Germans and he had no hesitation admitting the Gunners were second best.

Coquelin in Arsenal XI to do over Dortmund again!! 5

Posted on September 16, 2014 by admin

I was one of the Arsenal fans who were surprised to see that Arsene Wenger did not either find a permanent buyer or another long term loan deal for Francis Coquelin this summer. After his loan spell at the German club Freiburg did not really go as hoped, the 23-year old Frenchman seemed to have had his last chance with Arsenal.

But Wenger kept hold of him and so I assume that he might still be in the plans of the Gunners boss. And his versatility could be a major reason for that and could see him start his first senior game of the season away to Borussia Dortmund.
